quote doctors and healthcare providers turning people away. it is a program that basically puts medicare under the control of 15 people on a board that will determine what kind of benefits people get. that is a rationing board, however, you slice it. we don't think healthcare is going to be improved in this country. we think it will look very ugly over the next couple of years and that is why we will propose replacing obama care with patient centered healthcare and a better healthcare system for everybody. for the poor. for people in the states. for medicare so we can actually have affordable health insurance for everybody including people with preexisting conditions without costly government takeover which is what obama care represents. our budget does promote repealing obama care and replacing it with a better system. onchris: i want to pick up on the medicare. starting with people who are now you 54 and reportedly wanted to raise it to 56 but then there was political pushback, starting with people who are now 54 you would start to give them when they become of age a government subsidy

million unfunded healthcare costs for the employees of san francisco and we have to make those right so that they don't come back and hurt us and so these kind of fiscal things it's not because we are lucky i think it's because we have made smart division and is we have to continue that process of making smart decisions and we have to continue creating public/private partnerships and not run the government the way we used to run it and try to have good government cover and everything that is why it's important to have the business community get us good jobs and invest in education all of these things are going to help us be more successful and so focus more on that and try to keep my colleagues on the board of supervisors saying this is the smartest thing do and if we have money let's make a good investment of it. >> okay let's talk a bit about economic develop as it has been frontally mentioned here today we have the -- pleasure of hosting government rick perry recently for i think -- public blissity stunt but on a more serious level there has been a definite increase suns november abo

fueling higher cross -- cost growth in the healthcare specter. i think we would be in trouble if we were doing anything other than to try to slow the growth of our health care costs rather than trying to feel additional healthcare consumption. host:? and from new york is next on the independent line. preston, you are on the air. caller: i think you are missing a huge part of the picture. we are talking so much about how to pay for medicare and medicaid, the old healthcare thing, what percentage will states pick up, no one is talking about why it is so expensive. we spend a larger part of our gdp than any other country in the world on healthcare. i'm reminded of this conference of article recently in "time" magazine called bitter pill. you can get it online. it is about the cost of health. can you address that? guest: i agree with the caller that's an incredibly important question is what do we do with the overall increase in healthcare costs because clearly they are growing. my paper was not designed to study that question. my paper was not designed to study the merits of healthcare

had a shout out about healthcare and we have got i know highland hospitals here and kaiser is here is children's hospital is about to with uc s f and that is an important trend because as we grow as a region if we no longer -- although we will have to debate about certain teams it's something that is not necessarily drab for oakland and oakland is not something that should necessarily be bad for san francisco because in the rest of the world they call us the golden triangle and san francisco is a financial strength with oakland at the -- which, is they see us as a region and they come to look at investing in our area, they pretty much make a round and they don't just go to oakland they look at us and see us as a region. so healthcare, main strength of the kaiser is [inaudible/incomprehensible] to be an ensator in healthcare and that is one of the characteristic traits in oakland and we have had this year, after a decade, finally you launched the oakland -- in the worth of oakland by a point over there and our interim director debra allen is here all right -- and that is a major eco

believe that there could be such a crisis the thing you are really worried about is healthcare costs blowing up the budget, and again, we're doing almost nothing in all of the cuts to address the big rise in healthcare costs which of course democrats will want to strengthen the affordable care act more and republicans would like something like the ryan plan. >> h >> jamal: in the ryan plan it's really about lowering the benefits for medicare beneficiaries, either by raising the age or that sort of thing, but that doesn't get at the raise in healthcare costs. so if you delay their end try on to medicare they still have healthcare problems we're just transferring that from a government's budget to someone else's private budget. >> yes, but the conservative response to that is that by pushing more people on to a competitive healthcare market the market will bring down costs. that's the big hope there. >> jamal: because we have had a competitive health care market for the last 20 or 30 years. >> our healthcare market is not a well-functioning market. and could you construction? but, yeah

healthcare. hospitals are aware they're full of stress, but they compensate with perks like fexible hours, exercise and meditation programs. you can smoke, but you can't hide. a growing number of companies are screening for smokers. more companies are requiring employees to take a nicotine screening test in order to prove a nonsmoker status. health coverage is substanially more expensive for people who do light up. changes in the affordable care act could penalize smokers with surcharges worth up to 50% of healthcare costs. coming up, with "jack the giant slayer," that's 4 bombs for warner brothers. in our movies and money segment we discuss spring and summer redemption for the venerable studio. first, michael jordan or lance armstrong? which is the best role model to inspire business teams, next on first business. the business world looks to the athletic world for models of success and inspiration. usually it's a lesson in individual achievement, but there's a new book out that singles out former bulls champion michael jordan, not for his singular talents as a standout, but for his
